Former EU Ambassador at Large for the Arctic, European Union
After 25 years of the Arctic Council, this panel will be a reflection on where things stand in terms of Arctic governance issues (new Arctic policies both national and EU, the Arctic fisheries agreement, practical implementation of Arctic Council agreements made since 2011, gender equality issues, etc.). Different from the previous sessions, which will focus more on national and Permanent Participant strategies, this session will focus more on regional governance and the EU’s role in light of the EU’s updated Arctic policy.
